The New Daily Study Bible: The Gospel of Luke, by William Barclay
Wednesday evenings, 7PM, beginning September 19
Grace Cafe


This group has been working its way through the New Testament, using William Barclay's The New Daily Study Bible as its guide. As described on, "For more than fifty years and for millions of readers around the world, the New Daily Study Bible commentaries have been the ideal help for both devotional and serious Bible study. William Barclay's brilliant communication, down-to-earth approach, and sheer enthusiasm have inspired generations of readers." They took a break over the summer, but will be starting up again on September 19 with Barclay's The Gospel of Luke. This is an ongoing Bible study run by Ken Lee. In his words: Our goals for the study are to deepen our understanding of the Word of God and Who Jesus is as revealed to us by the Scriptures of Jesus's life, ministry, death and resurrection. William Barclay is a world-renowned Biblical scholar whose commentary on these Scriptures will help reveal to us the understanding we seek and bring us closer to the God we love and serve. Please feel free to invite others and hope to see you for our study in His Name. and you can feel free to drop in at any time.The cost of the book is $15.
